during your open periods. >> the obama administration has chosen to survive the suspect in the boston marathons in a civil trial. did they do the right thing? 90 seconds, sir. >> i believe that president obama and his justice department are completely committed to ensuring that justice is done in this case. all voted president obama last week. he said that justice would be done in this case. if in the opinion of president obama and his justice department, the proper place for prosecution is here in the federal district court system of the state of massachusetts, i believe that the court system here in massachusetts can provide that kind of a venue in order to hear this case. i defer to president obama. i defer to his justice department. if in their judgment, this is the proper place in order to conduct that trial. >> thank you, sir. mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> i think we have sufficient laws in our criminal system to prosecutor terror its, number two if you will. i think the effort to classify baptsant. nemy com i've been to gitmo and i've been involved in the process of trying to find
may be able to do so. when the obama administration going to that it was use the public safety exception, might be able you to do that but recognize that it .s limited and narrow so, now i think that might have been invoked. we don't know. that is one thing we don't actually currently know now. how this has proceeded. what is important here is that counsel and has has gone before a judge. look to the system to ork, which means we expect prosecutors to proceed fairly defensee their case and lawyers to zealously perform their duty. facts look to see what they find and architects they make. host: how different is the safety exception that can be invoked in the first phase after detention of a suspect, that different from looking at military or enemy status?t guest: the main difference the ublic safety exception is very narrow and limited in time. how not exactly clear much. i'm not sure if it was used by the obama administration, but if there was not enough time for a thorough interrogation of want from ou would somebody involved in an act of terrorism to know everything you nee
-existing conditions are being told basically by the obama administration, sorry, we didn't plan for you. mr. gardner: and i understand the money republicans would propose to spend to address this -- mr. wrung: and i understand the money the republicans would spend on this issue, the obama administration wants to spend on advertising, advertising the exchanges, dvertising how the obamacare will work. >> this is the helping sick americans act. tomorrow we're going to defund the preventive care act, the slush fund in the affordable care act that has been going for everything from paths and bike paths and advertising campaigns and spaying and neutering dogs, instead we're going to move that money, defund it, pay down about $8 billion on the deficit and we're going to move money into these high-risk pools that are run by the states that are going to take care of sick americans. mrs. roby: and we look forward to that debate in the next two days. we are closing in on the end of our hour, we are just joined by mr. griffin, the gentleman from arkansas and as you know, we are talking about tonight, this is ht
points on the backs of weary travelers. it should be to fix the problem. look, the obama administration knew about the sequester for months, for months, yet it gave the traveling public and congress only three days' notice before implementing the furloughs that are now being blamed for these delays. the f.a.a. administrator testified before the commerce and appropriations committees last week but made no mention of the magnitude and impact of delays of these furloughs that were just right around the corner. it seems completely bluesable t- completely implausible to me when hthat he didn't mention thn he testified last week. this episode is a perfect illustration of why republicans sought to give the administration even greater flexibility to ensure they could prioritize essential services. one of the areas for which that flexibility was intended was air traffic control. the fact that the administration rejected it strongly suggests a political motive is at play here. i would also remind everyone that this flexibility was reflected by nearly every -- rejected by nearly every democrat in
't let that happen and then republicans were saying what is the obama administration doing? they're doing exactly what the republicans voted for! they're doing exactly what the sequester requires. so you know, they can't have it both ways. they can't do these dumb ass across-the-board cuts without having any impact. and we're seeing the impact. we're seeing the impact in programs particularly that hurt the poor, we're seeing the impact in head start. we're seeing the impact in food stamps. we're seeing the impact on meals on wheels, all across the board. emergency room services. now we're seeing the impact on -- we've seen the impact in the military where training has been delayed or training has been just put aside. all kinds of things. ship battleships. and we've seep the delay now with air traffic just regular passengers, trying to get from one place to the other. delays cancellations and some smaller airports, the airports actually shut down because they had to close down the tower. one way out of this. you tell me what you think about this. particularly like to hear if you were caugh
lunch -- excuse me, dinner with his teenage cousins and the obama administration has never explained why this kid was killed. he was the son of aulaqi, but his dad had been killed two weeks earlier. this tells the stories of war lords who do the operations for u.s. and al qaeda militants and yemen and elsewhere. and really at the heart of it is the fact that one of obama's enduring legacies when it comes to foreign policy, he has solidified assassination as an essential component of policy. >> they can do it in the shadows, as you pointed out. in the book, i would say there hasn't been a lot of public resistance aside from people like you and others in the press. how have they done this without facing much resistance? publicly or inside the government from people who should be stepping up and saying, wait a minute, we can't kill u.s. citizens without due process? >> right, i think there's no question that if john mccain had won the election in 2008 or mitt romney had won it in 2012 that liberals would be screaming about this stuff and saying, you know, that -- there would be this thing,
but is it not possible that the obama administration unlikely but possible that they would choose to designate him an enemy combatant prosecute him in military court? >> to get into that discussion now is to get way ahead of the situation and a lot of speculation and conjecture. cases like this have been made countless times. you look at the world trade center case, many other cases have been done successfully here through our criminal justice system and my guess is that is the way it is going on this one as well. >> thank you so much. david kelley, i appreciate it. we're just learning that president obama will give a statement on the failed gun control amendment that will be in the rose garden at 5:30 p.m. eastern. we'll be right back.

rates are trending downward in this country but still 50,000 new cases each year. that's why the obama administration says it's making the epidemic a top priority. >> the president 2014 budget that he just released last week. includes over $23 billion to address hiv-aids in the united states. >> an epidemic that's 30 years old. in the district, bob barnard, fox 5 news. >> thanks so much for joining us tonight at 10:00. here's brian with the news edge at 11
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound to the throat but he is responding to some questions to a team the federal investigators in writing. any indication as to what he is saying or maybe perhaps just what they are trying to get out of him at
brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce

pilots association. a lot of republicans have charged that the obama administration is actually trying to make this look worse, make sequestration look worse for the republicans and not taking steps to try and make this system better. ray lahood and company said, hey listen, you want us to save $400 million a year. we have to do it somehow. this is how we're doing it. take a look at airline stocks. today they're doing pretty good. i want to focus on southwest. it had a great year. so have all the airlines. they're up over 60% year-to-date. even if you look today the stocks are okay. but i'll tell you, if what they say is going to happen on sunday and monday here and going forward. those airline stocks are headed just the other way. if we have the kind of delays they're talking about, real quick before i get away, show the towers, if you have the pictures of the towers out here. what will this mean, these furloughs? there won't be enough controllers. o'hare will have to shut down one of its two air traffic control towers. that means fewer runways can operate and fewer flights can take o
and the best example of this is the obama's administration war on coal. what is the impact of this great abundant natural resource? in 2012, coal was responsible for 37% of electricity generated in the united states, more than any other source of electricity. given current consumption rates, the united states has more than 200 and 30 years left remaining -- in coal reserves and responsible for 670,000 u.s. jobs. my home state, kentucky, has plused energy for centuries and most importantly we have produced coal. and our coal industry that has been built by the hard work of my fellow citizens of kentucky powers america. kentucky was the third largest coal-producing state and coal mining was the greatest source of energy production in the commonwealth. in 2011, coal mines employed more than 19,000 individuals through the year and mining directly contributed to approximately $4 billion to the commonwealth's economy. what has the war on coal brought to our country and to kentucky? domestic coal decreased by 4.6% just last year. in 2012 u.s. coal consumption for electric power declined by 11.5
of national drug control policy spoke last week about the obama administration's response to substance abuse. gil kerlikowske also announced a $1.4 million grant to the national association of drug court professionals for their work in helping nonviolent offenders with substance abuse. hosted by the national press club in washington, d.c., this is just over 50 minutes. >> well, good afternoon, everybody. it's a great pleasure, and it's a great honor to be with all of you. first, let me thank so many people for being here today. and thank you for that wonderful introduction and the information, and i'm so glad you had a chance to spend some time with general dean who's somebody i'm going to talk about a lot in a few minutes along with a couple other people up here, also, that i've been so impressed with. the drug policy issue, the drug policy problems are really complex, and they're really difficult, and that's why i'm so appreciative of this forum to be able to talk a little bit more at length about it. and then, certainly, to answer the questions. let me also mention the fact that donna lin
the thistle and the drone and to lay out the use of loans by the obama administration. it is recorded at american university in washington, d.c. is part of book tv college series. it's about half an hour to the >> booktv is on location at american university in washington, d.c.. we are pleased to be joined here by professor akbar ahmed at american university to give his most recent book is the vessel and the drone how america's war on taricani global terror on islam. dr. ahmed come visit a clash of civilizations or class of religion? >> i would say it is more complex. i find these concepts rather simplistic and by now more than ten years after 9/11, we should be aware of the complexity of what is happening on the ground a lot where america is involved in the various wars to it i find in this particular study that many of these conflicts are rooted in the clash already taking place before 9/11 between central governments and the tribes and communities on the periphery between states so therefore without an understanding of the culture and the history it is impossible to impose the simp
confirmation, so i would think that the obama administration would be thanking the senate for its work to make it easier for any president to get confirmations, and in any event when we're talking about cabinet members, president obama is being better treated than the last three presidents. we are talking about circuit judges. he is better treated than george w. bush. when we're talking about district judges, he is treated a little worse in his first term than george w. bush, but we changed the rules to speed up district judges and the score in the second term, as i have said twice now, obama 13, bush 1, obama way ahead. i like to see confirmations move ahead. i hope i don't hear this much more when the record shows that in fact it's a manufactured crisis. i thank the president and i yield the the presiding officer: without objection. the question is on the torres nomination. all in favor say aye. those opposed, no. the ayes appear to have it. the ayes do have it. the nomination is confirmed. the question is on the watson nomination. is there a sufficient second? there is. the clerk will call
is the obama administration made a big mistake, don't pur see this. >> that's past history. we are not going to hold these people responsible. >> they should have. all right. speaking of the president, what's he up to today? hey, we will tell you when we come back. >> this is the full court press. "the bill press show," live on your radio and on current tv. [ music ] >> this is the bull press show. >> at the top of the next hour we will be talking to congressman michael quapano, head of the massachusetts congressional delegation. he represents the city of boston, and he will give us the latest on the investigation into that bombing at the boston mayorthon t meanwhile, peter, a little breaking news on that front. >> cnn has reported that they have found the lid to the pressure cooker. we know that this was a pressure cooker bomb on the roof of one of the buildings surrounding the marathon finish line. they are saying this is really a big deal. they already found parts of what looked like the bottom of it, charred and a mess but the lid on these things essentially ju
pelosi. and how much was passed and what was done. >> bill: in that first -- obama administration. do you see -- maybe a better chance because of the political political -- let's see realities facing the republican party? a better chance on immigration? >> well, i do think there is a better chance on immigration. i think at one point they have to decide which one are they going to do. i think when the republicans woke up the day after the election and realized latinos voted, i think that they -- >> bill: hello! did they ever! >> i think they had to come to grips with that reality. and so i think there is a better chance on immigration. we'll just have to wait and see. i sit on judiciary. i sat through, as a matter of fact, our first hearing was about immigration and it went on all day long. and what was very clear that day was that they could handle immigration reform up to citizenship. we will make you legal residents but we just can't go that far. i think donald trump was the one who told the truth. he went to the cpac conference. what did he say? he said 11 million democrats. [ laughte
theory that the obama administration is deporting a saudi national who is behind the bombings. it is the wild wild west. we were saying -- somebody made a good point in the paper yesterday, that it makes you almost wish for the days of the 6:00 pm news where you had to wait, but at least it was reasonably accurate and responsible. >> yeah, and the "new york post" and fox news have gone the way of making it up as they go along. cnn has fallen in this trap of so interested in beating everybody else by a couple of seconds that they will put something on the air that they haven't confirmed. and then they will say this may be speculation, but let me tell you. just report what you are seeing. especially like right now. you have reporters on the scene, who are 2 or 300 yards away. what are you hearing from them. >> stephanie: david we're going to let you go to you have can get it right at the top of the hour. >> all right. thank, stephanie. >> stephanie: all right. honey. >> we can confirm that the attack was caused by martians i'm sorry, i am told that is not tr
korea, the obama administration has thus far pursued a policy that some has referred to strategic patience. will e that kim jong-un return to the negotiating table and return to denuclearization. we're in a situation where the current dictator has surpassed even his tyrant father and grandfather in unpredictability and recklessness. in a joint subcommittee hearing last week, i think most of our members agreed that the policy of strategic patience, if you want to call it that, has been a failure. i will get the questions out and then you can respond. the second is with reference to burma. certainly we've witnessed dramatic changes in that nation in the past two years, but i think we all agree there may well be some bumps in the road ahead. we applaud the reforms instituted thus far and certainly we're happy to see an emerging new political process last spring by elections, but we're also witnessing an escalation of ethnic violence. the military remains one of the most powerful actors in the country, and instead of working to curtail ethnic violence, it's thought by many to actually
review board. clearly even john kerry is not confident in the obama administration's versions of the verns -- events. kerry promised the committee that he would clear the air, in his words, though he also repeatedly used the phrase that clears the air needs to be done so we can move on to far more important issues. and i am so grateful to secretary kerry for taking that position. we do need to get to the truth. dead d at benghazi, the americans cry out for truth. hose who were harmed and hurt, americans there deserve the truth. opefully we will get that. mr. speaker, with so much suffering and anguish right now in america, it is still the greatest nation in the history of the world. and may god guide the leadership in this country, that we don't drop the ball and fail on our watch. that we show ourselves to be worthy recipients of the gifts of liberty given to us by prior nerations, all coming as the founders noted as a gift from god. ith that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair will entertain a motion to adjourn
truman through ted kennedy right through the obama administration. it ensured if you had a pre-existing condition you could not be denied coverage. it ensured that every child in america had health coverage. it ensured if you became sick, that you could not become bankrupt. 2/3 of all bankruptcies in the united states were because of illness. so i was very proud of that vote. and i think that it is something modeled upon the massachusetts law, and i voted for obamacare. i believe that it's important. i believe it goes right to fundamental values in our state and in our contry. -- our country. i believe it is a right and not privilege to have access to health care. i voted yes on obamacare. steve voted no. >> mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> sure. that's one. let me just address that, that's probably not our biggest difference. the biggest difference between ed and i are really if you look at our records, and i go back, ed is a policy guy, and i'm a people guy. that's why i was explaining before that on all these fights with the bank bailout, ed was with the banks and i was with the pe
these agencies, not the united states congress. under the obama administration, immigration agents can no longer arrest those who violate u.s. immigration law. immigration agents cannot arrest an individual for entering the u.s. illegally. we cannot arrest someone who over stays a visa. immigration agents are prohibited from enforcing laws regarding fraudulent documents and a dandy that by illegal aliens. agents are forced to apply the dream act, not to children in schools, but to adult inmates in jails. mmiething criminals back in nation, criminals who have insulted our officers, and who prey on children. at the same time, i.c.e. officers are punished and threatened by dhs and i.c.e. leadership, threatened with the loss of their jobs simply because they attempt to enforce the nation's immigration laws and provide for public safety. chosen togang 8 has ignore law enforcement officers, have a question i would like to ask them publicly. schumer, dickhuck durbin, john mccain, patrick leahy, lindsey graham, roark menendez, jeff blake, michael bennett's cut as united states senators, the representati
released a letter, nine-page letter to president obama asking the administration to reveal its legal basis for targeting killing and called for an end to the secrecy surrounding the use of drones. what's the purpose of the letter? >> this is the first time that all of the human rights groups in the united states including some that operate internationally as well all signed on to the same letter telling president obama that in our view, this is an illegal program. that this is a program that needs to end the way it's been operated. and that we also need to know a lot more about the program. >> bill: didn't the president say when john brennan's confirmation up and you were in, we talked about this before, that they were going to come forward with their guidelines and their policy and so we would all know when they used drones and who makes the decisions? >> well, they -- at that time, because to try to get john brennan confirmed to be c.i.a. director they let a few more pieces of the information about the drone program out. particularly to members of the senate intelligence committee. but o
of the president's aid referred to the boston attack as terrorism before he did. a senior administration official privately called it an act of terror shortly --er mr. obama smoke on spoke on monday. chuck hagel had no doubts. >> any event with multiple explosive devices as this appears to be is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as an act of terror. >> meanwhile, house speaker john boehner says calling it terrorism doesn't really explain it? >> we can describe it a lot of different ways, but it was a terrorist attack of some sort. now, again, until we know who or why, i don't think we can further define it. >> president obama will go to boston on thursday to attend an interfaith service for victims of monday's attack. no word yet on whether he will speak at the gathering. bret? >> bret: wendell goler live on the north lawn. thank you. who do you think will eventually be found to have been behind these bombings? let me know on twitter. follow me at bret baier. still ahead, we will go live to a boston hospital to get an update on the injured there. when we return, almost everyone want
